Moving Target: American Dream
Closing Bell by Ryan Carrington
Ryan Carrington
"Closing Bell" 61" x 50" x 47" 2016
Featuring a giant hard hat made of plywood and designer suits, Ryan Carrington (as is typical of the artist) gets a little political. His other pieces relate.

Ryan is a lecturer at Santa Clara University teaching sculpture. He received his MFA from San Jose State University, and earned his BFA at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Having previously worked in both construction and maintenance, he is inspired to reflect upon the shift in public perspective in classifying blue and white-collar workers in the United States. Ryan's work draws from his personal history to explore the connection between labor, class, work ethic, and economics.

Using cast objects, construction materials, and tools that combine craftsmanship with symbolic irony, he is able to communicate his thoughts, ideas, and memories regarding themes of labor.
